Yes...I am sure the children and me miss some of the nuamces of what Rena says
Definitely Rotten Rena ...because she's threatening and bad......but enough of a buffoon not to be too scary for little ones
she manages to make the difference between the two witches , makes them 3D
a new take on weightwatchers !
having heard the story I am now going to get the book so we can see the illustrations ...especially if there's one of Rena covered in egg
probably the favourite,it manages to tell a great christmas story but isnt too sugary sweet , a salutory tale for any naughty young person with the naughty witches not getting anything !
the imagery of the reindeer made from sycamore leaves and twigs i'd love one for my porch ....merchandise please !
As far as the children are concerned it has all the essentials of a christmas story but is exciting , ...will Rena really spoil christmas, what will father christmas do? how can the treebobs help? and then the arrival of the ultimate christmas fairy in the Treebob Queen
Lindsay Abbott is again brilliant and Anthony Richardson is immediately recognisable as Father Christmas but without being a cliche
Well as an adult I laughed out loud at the arrival of the Royal Air Bobs ( I go to an airshow every year and I think we are all hoping to see them there next year instead of the Red Arrows) we were all worried when the reindeer got poorly but uplifted and happy once the fairy queen arrived ....phew !
time for merchandise surely .....a Treebob, a Royal air bob , a reindeer at least ....its becoming a whole world to exist in for small children
The treebobs and the giant mole is probably still my favourite but this is a book that would take many listenings so much in it
the arrival of the flying hat and the pixie- really builds anticipation of what on earth is going to happen now
This one has even more characters , hard to believe its the same person...even each witch sounds different ...and the pixie has just a hint of evil
well it was strange to find i was cheering rotten rena on !
I love how the treebobs are the brains of the outfit
I love the voices they bring it alive and make all the different characters easily distinguishable and memorble can't believe one person did it...with most audiobooks i am disappointed when its one person
definitely Rotten Rena she has all the best lines
it seems to whizz along and you feel part of it
Rotten Rena flies again
Its the kind of book I like my children to have such a refreshing change and harks back to my childhood too. ALSO it is JUST the right length to do in one go
